  • Got Tased and OC'd on Wednesday. WHOA

    Did the full 5 second ride with the X26P, and was sprayed with Defense Technology MK-4 OC. Never before have I been so happy to hold a couple certifications.

    Technically, you should never have to do either again........


    And if you believe that----------------
    My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

      I don't believe that. I hope I don't for certification purposes however I know it will be inevitable that I'll catch it again in cross contamination... our instructor sprayed it in the air around us beforehand and that was bad enough.

            I hope to never get oc'd again. I was the guy who just kept repeating one phrase, " this is bullsh#t" "why"

            Oc stuck with me for a few days. The worst is when your working out and it just comes back out of nowhere.
            "Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever."

              Yeah, I got it in August in the Florida heat and humidity. That was fun. I wished I could crawl into that damn bucket of water at the decon station.

                Good times.

                Spray just sucks. The taser isn't bad. I got the barbs and a full ride when I had to do it. It really wasn't a big deal. If I had to get tased again I could but F*** getting sprayed again.

                  I am a weirdo on that (well, maybe not just that), in that I would rather take the spray than the ride again. I hate electricity. Working on naval aircraft electrical systems for so long can do that to you.

                    I would probably take the taser again, it is quite a rush (I say that as I'm sitting on my couch, but I know if I was in the situation again I wouldn't be so enthusiastic).

                    As for the OC, I never took the hit. I had PRK eye surgery (similar to LASIK) a year before hand and that's enough eye sore for me. Has anyone who had eye surgery taken the OC hit and does it affect it?

                      Actually I took a shower about 5 hours later, however I leaned over the side of the bathtub for a good 10 minutes washing my whole head over and over. When I got into the shower, I was still cautious but had no issue with "runoff".

                      Fortunately for us it was 30* outside with a nice cold wind. Made clearing the eyes much quicker plus the cold air felt good. I couldn't imagine getting it in the middle of summer when your pores are wide open in your skin..

                        A couple of weeks ag oI got OC'd and went for a 5 second ride with the prongs in the back... with that being said I rather go for 10 5 second rides than get OC'd again! F OC! Gift that keeps on giving hours later!

                          I got clipped, one in the right shoulder and one on the left butt cheek. He wanted to cross the plane line. I have two nice little blisters now.

                            I hated both. If I had to do one or other I would say just surprise me.

                            Interestingly enough, a little over 2 years on the street, and I have yet to ever even take out my OC spray. I just haven't encountered a situation where I thought that would be the best option because I'm always thinking about cross contamination.

                            I think the Taser is a fantastic tool though.

                              Lol! I'd rather get tased than sprayed again.

                              I say that now, but when I was lined up for my second ride, the one I needed for certification, I almost yelled for him to stop. It sucks getting it again when you remember the pain. And I screamed the same way both times.

                              Now, the guy where the instructor "missed", pinned his legs down, and he got the follow up? I think he had it worst. Even the video hurt me to watch!
